All in all, it’s not a bad game – it’s pretty fun to play and it brings back memories. But it’s way too generic in almost every way and it lacks anything that would make it really stand out.
There are many big name jRPGs that are very similar to this, have much larger budgets, superb production values and are usually more innovative. From the player’s perspective, I don’t see why I would want to play a low budget knockoff instead.
Because it’s indie? Sorry, but that doesn’t mean much by itself. Most indie games I love are either better than the huge AAA games or at least offer some completely unique experience I can’t find elsewhere. Aveyond 2 doesn’t have anything that games like Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest or Chrono Trigger haven’t already done better. It tries to be like them but fails short due to obvious limitations.
It’s not bad in itself but it doesn’t exist in a vacuum.
